Orienteering in the spotlight – vote for Tove!

Posted on | December 27, 2018 | Category: Arena, FootO, News

Do you think that Tove Alexandersson was the greatest Swedish athlete in 2018? If so – vote for Tove to win the Jerring Prize!

In 1981, Annichen Kringstad won the Jerring Prize, and that was the last and so far only time that an orienteer has been awarded this prize, “Jerringpriset” in Swedish. It is the most prestigious award for sport achievements in Sweden and it is often referred to as “the Award of the People”.

This year, Tove Alexandersson is one of the top candidates, and if she were to win, it would mean a lot for orienteering in Sweden, and of course, for the visibility of orienteering in general.

Only eight candidates remain and it is the people – within or outside Sweden – who make the decision. The winner will be presented at a big annual gala which is broadcast and seen by very many viewers.
